kind of does. the last two things that president obama signed into law at the new year were the fiscal cliff thing and the pentagon bill. and the pentagon funding bill includes a big new hard-fought provision over whether women who are in the military who are raped can have access to abortion. this is a live policy issue being debated and hanged as a matter of policy right now. in the defense bill that was just signed by president obama, female troops can now receive medical coverage for abortions that are the result of rape. that is a change in policy that is brand-new. previously, the only abortions that were covered for our military servicewomen were in cases where her life was in danger. not anymore. and this is a huge deal in the u.s. military, because it turns out this is a huge problem in the u.s. military. in 2011, a little more than 2,000 cases of sexual assault were reported by female service members. the actual number when you include cases that go unreported is estimated by the pentagon to be more like 19,000. 19,000 cases of rape and sexual assault in the military every ye

year. and speaker john boehner says, president obama admitted during a closed door meeting, that quote, we do not have a spending problem. joining us now is the man who got that quote, steve moore, from the wall street journal, i think that was the most important interview so far this year. you got it out there, that the president says no spending cuts, even as we approach this debt ceiling debate. i think that really sets the tone for the rest of the year and the rest of the administration, does it not? >> yeah, it really does, stuart. and you know, when speaker boyner told me thboyne boyne-- boehner told me that, my jaw dropped, i think your jaw dropped probably when you heard it, too, because if the president says we don't have a spending problem, what's the first stage of recovery from addiction, you have to acknowledge you've got a problem, right? so i think that tells a lot about why they didn't reach a deal, but you know, i'll make this point, stuart. i think that republicans, now that that tax deal is done, i think they are now negotiating from higher ground. now shall as you'v

in 2009 president obama decided against an investigation. and a criminal investigation ended last year with no charges and no public report. and that's how it should be. because remember, nation, when it comes to actual torture, "what you don't know won't hurt you."

[ laughter ] that's how i learned that slavery was bad, and lincoln was killed by a vampire. [ laughter ] again daniel day lewis is a genius. he will be missed.

supported obama care. the administration spent years working to make it a reality. how is it possible that this was a surprise to the people who introduced the bill and the people who voted for it? >> well, anderson, i have to tell you, i talked to a number of congressional sources, sources over at the white house, advocacy groups. and i would have to say, some of them did know about this before it was passed but they say it came very late in the game. and here's the situation with the passage of the health care law. essentially, any part of this bill, had it been pulled out in the last stages of the legislative process, could have brought the whole thing down. so whether it was this gun control part, if that had been pulled out, i've been told by a couple of democratic sources, you know, some moderate democratic senators could have walked away from this bill at the last second. so they were just very, very afraid that any provision, had it been yanked out at the last second, could have brought the whole thing down. >> and sanjay, the provisions that were slipped in, what will they im

step forward, under the clinton administration and then under the first year of the obama administration. and each time the senate killed it. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back home saying, 'do this, do that, do this.' and it's not clim

, new talk from the obama administration that the u.s. could decide to pull all remaining troops out of afghanistan by the end of next year. the deputy national adviser for strategic communication would not rule that out during a conference call with reporters. >> that would be an option we would consider because again the president does not view the negotiations as having a goal of keeping u.s. troops in afghanistan. >> the pentagon said thousands of troops may be needed beyond 2014 to contain al qaeda who currently has 66,000 troops there. all of this comes with president obama scheduled to meet with hamid karzai friday at the white house. karzai is in washington and will meet with a group of senators including mitch mcconnell. joining us is retired four-star ynl and vote who served twice in i wack. thank you very much for joining us. general, i will start off with you. many intricate or believe that the president's choice in john kerry and check hagel indicate withdrawing more troops and leaving far fewer in that country and as we move forward with other possible conflict

the message chuck hagel has been sending for years on this. the obama administration has been pretty tough on iran behind the scenes. hagel has been consistent himself, saying look, we cannot allow a nuclear iran, war should not be our first choice, and that also is consistent with the president. the president began by thinking perhaps he could negotiate more with ahmadinejad than has proven to be the case. he's evolved on this issue. my guess is chuck hagel as secretary of defense will reflect that evolution. >> there's one other thing i want to ask you each about. this is relevant -- well, we'll ask you whether you think it's relevant in terms of timing. in terms of topic i think this is relevant. the number of sexual assaults in the military each year is about 19,000. it is a serious issue. there are women in the military now and in 1996, when running for senate, the literature from chuck hagel reportedly said quote, i am pro-life with one exception, the life of the mother. now, who knows, people agree and disagree with that. i'm simply curious about democrats are not noticing that, tal
they told the president to a year and a half ago. the president lost, but likins won on the question of if we wanted to raise the debt ceiling because obama is overspending. you have to cut spending dollar for dollar by the same amount. speaker boehner has reiterated that that is enough. so has mitch mcconnell. the president of united states can stand up and say that i lied to you and i said i wanted to reduce running. i like you, and i said i was going to offer government reforms. but if he does that, i think he isn't is in a very weak position and democrats are killing themselves if they think that the american people want to continue overspending. and the debt that obama is running out. we can give the president a month of debt ceiling increase or six months or year. then you have the continuing resolutions. because the democrats have not passed the budget or written a budget in more than three years, we have a continued resolution. beyond your points are very good. thank you. neil: they say no deed goes unpunished. did you hear about aig? it just keeps on suing. at a dry cleaner,
? >> that is a change. i mean, the president obama we've seen over the last few years on the campaign trail, you know, rarely engaged in the gun control debate. even when, you mow, terrible tragedies happened like at ft. hood, at virginia tech. he responded, but he didn't really wade into the debate, the way he is after newtown. now, certainly, you can say the magnitude of this tragedy warrants a bigger response, and we're seeing that from around the country. but there's also a different political climate here for the president. he, as he said, was just re-elected. his gallup approval it above 50 which is numbers he hasn't seen in a while. or wasn't seeing certainly before his re-election. and may not see for much longer. >> well critics, as you know, say the president is actually now showing his true colors. that he's a big government liberal after he avoided topics like gun control on the campaign trail. and he reassured israel activists by not realing out military action against iran. i mean, is this sort of about more the political climate changing and the opportunity for him to push for long-hel

think this year -- there are a couple of things this year that are interesting will happen to obama-care. mobile health is a big deal as we start to plug the holes in the health care infrastructure. i want to highlight things like equity crowdfunding in health care this year. that's a big story people aren't talking about. somebody has to pay for things like community clinics and these mobile health care. obviously, the government is not spending as much as they used to, particularly for development stage, biotech, like the nih. somebody has to pick up the slack, otherwise it won't happen. why not let the community do it rather than government. >> how would you play that? >> i think you will see some companies coming public, you being part of the crowd, maybe you're just a crowd of one, maybe able to participate in the private coming the second half of this year via jobs act and maybe opportunity to become a junior venture capitalist. quite interesting. >> any new exciting drugs on the hoer hoernz we will see this year? >> maybe not new. bg 12 from biogen, for multiple sclerosis. fo
in the house and hopefully get a democratic majority for the last two years of the obama term. that may be a long term goal. he is a democrat obviously. jon: is that so say politics is more important than progress in the country? >> that is the crazy part. you know we don't talk about it. president's ratings are pretty good right now. congress's ratings are in the toilet but the thing is, that the american people do want people who govern, people who will do something in washington, especially when it comes to the economy. it is time to get something done. i think that is the overwhelming results we see see in poll numbers, yet both sides are positioning if they're involved in political campaigning. jon: that fiscal cliff thing was a pretty good example. >> oh, my goodness. jon: let's not get you started on that. thank you, juan. >> you're welcome, jon. jenna: right now we're following some new developments in the colorado movie massacre. prosecutors expected to finish with their last witness today in this preliminary hearing as they outline their case against accused mass murderer jame

dozen provisions that have been renewed sometimes two years, but are scheduled to expire in virtually all scheduled to expire at the end of flashier. some of the beginning of the year. you see here that president obama enacted in 2009 tax credits focus on lower income and moderate and moderate income folks. those are scheduled at the beginning of the year. blue at the bottom payroll tax cuts. the temporary payroll tax cut you can see all income levels in the scheduled to expire at the end of the year. end of last year. so this is what was tito. also in the purple color for the taxes originally enacted in the health reforms scheduled to begin at the beginning of this year. see how different tax provisions scheduled to strike at the start of the year, take them all together they add up to a pretty big hit. this is what actually happened. same scale, same structure under the taxpayer relief act. when they came to visualize with going on in your mind. a couple things to leave out. the bars on what actually happened are by and large much lower than what were scheduled to happen. enough ord
